A couple of weeks ago I was recommended the book the ‘Secret life of Wombats’
, which fortells the story of a young boy that went into the burrows of wombats for his own personal research. This sounded an amazing concept so I had to read the book, and it is excellent.
Not only does it tell the story of the wombat boy, Peter Nicholson, but also the history of the wombat from it’s fossilised ancestry through to how the first European settlers attempted to classify it!
A very worthwhile and rewarding book!
